Apart from its sleek design, varied floor plan options, and impressive amenities, what makes The Edge at Flagler Village a unique choice in urban living is its location. Location, location, location. Downtown Fort Lauderdale has become a cultural hub for the artist community of the area, with Flagler Arts and Technology (FAT) Village serving as the focal point. Surrounding FAT Village, there are many galleries, shops, and cafes that reflect this open and creative atmosphere, as well. The Edge at Flagler Village is positioned splendidly within this neighborhood, affording its residents opportunities to enjoy all that comes from living this type of sophisticated, yet relaxed lifestyle.
Just outside of the artistic enclave in which The Edge is located, lies the historic Las Olas Boulevard where events such as art fairs, wine and food festivals, boat shows, seasonal parades, and the like are held throughout the year. Additionally, boutique shopping and fine dining can be had all along the Boulevard daily. Urban gardens and open food markets also exist in the area. Essentially, this community has a bit of everything, everything that an urbanite could want, that is. — The Edge is best suited for those who wish to reside in a socially active, socially conscious, life-embracing downtown area. Is that you?
Downtown Fort Lauderdale has seen a significant growth in its luxury rental market over the last few years. Today, luxury rentals abound! With Millennials and young professionals moving to the area to embrace the unique lifestyle that runs from the beach up Las Olas and through FAT Village, the various new developments are not having a difficult time finding people to enjoy the upscale living accommodations that they have to offer.
Presently, there are approximately 3,500 units on the market or that will be introduced to the area in the near future. And, with that, an additional 3,000 units are currently in the proposal stage. The sizes of these units vary, but most average between 1,000-1,100 square feet, with studios and one-bedroom units being a bit smaller — while smaller, they are still quite popular due to their lower rents. Rental rates average approximately $2.25 per square foot today, but that figure is meant to be increasing, perhaps significantly. Demand certainly allows for it.
